Argentine company INVAP is working with the national helicopter manufacturer Cicaré on the development of the Rotary-winged Unmanned Aerial System (RUAS), Jane’s learned from an industry source on 9 December.


The RUAS, which is to be geared towards maritime operations, will be an autonomous, compact, and tactical medium-range shipborne system that can operate in severe weather conditions: the aircraft’s materials and components are protected against corrosion, rain, and strong winds.

Powered by two piston-engines, the RUAS weighs 80 kg with a modular payload system; has a top speed of 95 km/h; and an endurance of six hours. The platform is billed as providing an ‘over-the-horizon’ surveillance capability for surface vessels.
